I'm pleased to have partnered with Johnny Thornton to co-curate "(con)text," a group exhibition at La Bodega Gallery, featuring five artists who incorporate text in their art practices in dynamic ways. The artworks selected for this exhibition use language as a device to explore social and political issues within their work. Each artist utilizes text in distinctive ways—employing different mediums, techniques and aesthetic strategies—to create a visual language reflective of their respective subject matters. My new works conflating powerful mens' admissions of sexual harassment with common consumer goods will be on view.
Participating artists: Elysa Batista, Delano Dunn, Grace Hong, Karen Mainenti and Katrina Majkut.
Opening reception is on Friday, April 6, 7-10pm. Show runs through May 1.
